Recently I attended the Academy of General Dentistry 2013 annual meeting in Nashville. My main course of study while there covered everything you would want to know about removable anti-snoring appliances. This was an eye opener as to just how effective these devices are. According to the physician that led the course these retainer-like devices have been proven to be as effective as the CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine in helping folks prevent airway obstruction during sleep . So many of our Murfreesboro friends and family have to use the CPAP -’Darth Vader’ mask every night. Good restful deep sleep is as important to our health as anything. Call me at 615-893-5500. I’ll have you in for a free consultation or as part of your regular check-up. Do it for yourself or a family member. I’d love to help!
